." and robert costa from the national review. if i wanted a deal, i wouldn't insult, demonize and pound away at the opposition. he certainly to use a cnbc phrase is not rising above partion. where does he get off doing this? >> larry, this is the politics of what happens in washington. president obama went to the podium today and he outlined the hard-line position. this was red meat for the liberal base. we know though just as we saw in the fiscal cliff that a deal will have to be struck to avoid a government shut down. i think he ultimately he will come to the center, depends how much. >> kate, i don't think america is a deadbeat nation and i don't think republicans are deadbeats because they want to cut spending. which is really the big problem. >> yeah, this president has zero interest in cuttings or discussing cutting spending. he's made it clear, carnie made it clear. obama wants to destroy the opposition here. saying that the republicans are holding a gun to the head of the american people, that was a shocking statement that they want to limit payments to the elderly and yet again chil
. let's bring in the brain trust. robert costa, washington editor for the national review. good saturday afternoon to all of you. white house in the last congress did manage to squeeze the fiscal cliff deal through. but many americans aren't happy with the results. i want to throw up numbers here. this is a gap up po-- this is a gallup poll that finds 43% of the country proves. 65% of republican s disapproved. what can the new congress, what can they do if anything to turn it around? >> one of the major challenges is the way that the republicans have undertaken the process of arriving at any kind of legislation that the american public is behind. >> yeah. >> it is the process that has been completely bastardized and become so dysfunctional that 112 got labeled the do-nothing congress. and i think that part of the challenge is, certainly with president obama, and the negotiation that will happen with the debt ceiling. >> yeah. >> the difference between compromise versus capitulation, part of the, no question, there will be additional compromise but the hard ball fight will be around the d
want to bring in the brain trust, msnbc contributor and political editor peter bacon, robert costa, washington editor for "the national review" and also a cnbc kudlow report contributor. good sunday afternoon to both of you. >> good afternoon, craig. >> birth control looks like it could be the next legal battle for the white house on health care. according to the "new york times" roman catholics, evangelicals and mennenize the are all challenging a new provision in the health care law that requires employers to cover birth control in employee health plans. the religious groups say that the government is forcing them to go against their faith. bob costa, what's the argument here? >> republicans are devastated after this election so they are looking for ways to combat the obama agenda and look to the court and think birth control is an issue that will really get conservative activists active on the campaign trail and in the statehouse and active working with congress so that's where they are really focused now as they say this as a religious freedom issue. >> and aisha moody mills is
abstained or voted present. washington editor for the national review robert costa was in the room. i think i had it wrong, nine nays, voted against him and one present. how tense, how close, what happened? >> larry, it was really tense. i was up there on the press gallery. i felt like i was a spectator at the world series watching over all this chaos and tension. if he lost 17 republican votes that means he would have went to a second ballot. he avoided that. he safely won the gavel. but at the same time, nine different republicans, tea party conservatives voted for different people. that's a threat to boehner that shows boehner does not have full control of his caucus. >> well, what was the revolt, why did they do that, bob? >> larry, the conservative flank is so frustrated. they just had this entire fiscal cliff deal. they had this hurricane sandy relief mess, they're frustrated with baoehner. they tried to take a stand, but the biggest take away though nine republicans voted against boehner, no, ma'minated allen w kevin mccarthy voted for boehner, there's no real challenger to boehner.
majority action. and robert costa, national review, washington editor and cnbc contributor. mr. meyer, you are relentless, you won't take no for an answer. what's your take on the boehner story now? >> my take is that before this conference, we definitely had 20 members who were willing to do this. the fact of the matter is that i think boehner in the conference tried to convince people that he would be hard on spending, but i'm not sure that's the case. i think the point is that speaker boehner will lead the house gop out of the majority in 2014. we will lose the 2014 election, lose the house if boehner is speaking speaker. he's less popular than nancy pelosi. he just signed an agreement that has $41 worth of tax hikes for every $1 of spending cuts. it actually delayed the sequester. >> i get that. i'm just giving it one cheer for stopping the recession. that's all it did. let me go to bob costa. robert, what are you hearing about the boehner story. how much trouble does he have, plan a, plan b, now the hurricane sandy, as our own john harwood reported. i don't see any options, robert, bu
an msnbc political analyst and "washington post" columnist. robert costa is the washington editor at national review and a cnbc contributor. gentlemen, the 112th congress was not only unproductive, it was hugely unpopular. for comparison's sake, the irs, nixon during watergate and bp during the oil spill all had higher popularity ratings than this congress, and yet, ezra klein, if the objective was to thwart all things obama, you could say they were immensely successful. >> and yet they weren't because the overarching strategy was to eventually thwart obama himself, to get him not re-elected, to allow mitt romney or whoever was the republican nominee for president, to become president in 2012 thus fulfilling what senate minority leader mitch mcconnell once referred to as his top priority. that didn't work at all. the republican brand was so tarnished in part because of the actions of the 112th congress, in part because of the way republicans acted around things like the debt ceiling, that in the end president obama was re-elected with a quite large margin and democrats got more vo
contributor robert costa. . . i think it's boring, boring, boring. you tell why this is a great. are not attached to this proposal. very three months. let me say this, from all my reporting down there in eastern virginia default on the debt. so what they're trying to do is just punt on the debt ceiling and focus the spending cut fight on the upcoming continuing resolution to fund the government. >> i didn't hear any focus on spending cuts. and i didn't hear any focus on the sequester. and i'm looking at rasmussen polls that show me that the public wants across-the-board spending cuts. and you and i both know the republican base is hungry for that after getting hosed in that high tax bill. >> i think you're a bit off, larry, respectfully in that republicans i think want to have these spending cuts. but they're picking a strategic battle. and you could be right in saying they're picking the wrong battle. but they don't want to have the spending battle on the debt limit. they want to have it on the cr, that continuing resolution to fund the government for the rest of the year. >> w
mahon is a democratic strategy exist robert costa is washington editor for the renowned "national review." steve, let's talk politics. and i hope you can do this honestly. i don't know what your current constituency is or who you have to work with but it seems to me there's a national con sense u. right, left and center at least right and center on doing something on background checks. people with mental, emotional problems, with criminal records should not get a gun, at least in a formal transaction, where you can stop it. i'm not sure we're ready to go for the assault weapons ban again because of the opposition by the nra and gun owners of america, whatever they're called. your thoughts. >> well, i think this is where the rubber meets the road. if you're a democrat and you're from one of those purple states where elections are very close all the time, this is a very tough vote for you. but frankly, it's why you're a democrat. i mean, there are -- there is widespread agreement on background checks. there's widespread agreement on these magazines that can hold up to 100 rounds. and the assault weapon
political expert panel tonight, mark hanna, national review editor robert costa, and phil musser of the republican governors association. robert costa, you know the highlights of this bill, you heard jeff, does it have any chance to pass the house? >> larry, i just got over here from capitol hill, sat down with marco rubio, and he told me and other conservatives cheering for this bill to not be too exuberant because this is just the principle we're outlining today. the president could mess this up, the house of representatives has to mull this over. this is the first step of many that need to happen. >> why would the president mess this up? i mean obama seems to have made this a priority. he was out last summer with an executive order to let the kids of illegals stay and go to school. why would he screw it up? >> well, i think he's largely not led on this issue for his entire first term, larry, i think it's instructive that the democrats today chose to partner up with senate republicans as opposed to waiting to join on the obama bill. frankly, i'm glad to see that the senate is l
attached a ten year balanced budget plan back on the extension. let's get to robert costa, what, it wasn't good enough that they extended the debt? they don't know what they can do that? i don't know what the heck that means. you tell me. >> greetings from capitol hill. interesting things coming out of the house meeting tonight. in order to get this three month extension of the debt limit. you have to get conservative votes. he made a pledge to balance the budget in ten years. when he unveils the budget, they see that as a big win. >> i'm going to ask this of you and our guests. they are talking about a balanced budget. can you tell me why, where, how they are going to get this budget balanced? mr. ryan, last year, i don't think this budget balanced for 20 years. you are saying ten, ten is fine. are they going to cut something that they can identify? >> your comments are reflective of what they are saying to his face. between now and april when paul ryan unveils his budget. you are boeing going to see hig for his cuts. they want him to take the lead when it comes to reform. >> you heard
. if your conservative philosophy is indeed right, winning will come. joining me now, robert costa, and dave weigel, both of them doing great reporting, i appreciate you being here. robert, i want to start with you, tell me the thinking behind the three-month extension, why three months? >> a lot of it has to do public relations, i think what i heard from the retreat, and members in the room, they want to start to win the pr battle again, to do it they have to take the debt limit off the table, and fight with spending in regard to the upcoming defense cuts, the sequester. they want to put the debt limit off for three months, get it out of the headlines, not let the president use it as a republican punching bag. trying to tell his colleagues, come to the center, let's move on to other issues. >> one of the interesting things about the way they did it and in doing it for only three months, dave, when you do it for three months the idea is you can always come back to it if you want. but it seems to me, certainly the way it is being reacted to or being read in the press, in saying there is going
us now to examine the media's coverage of this volatile issue. paul farhi. robert costa, washington editor at "national review." in new york keli goff political correspondent for theroot.com. is the cover of this issue, joe biden's meetings this week, is it fair or a bias towards some government action? >> there's probably not enough coverage of the biden working group and what's happening on capitol hill. the conversation seems to be dominated by the talking heads on the cable news networks about what their antics are in that nightly program. more coverage of the political process. i believe that. >> you believe the substance is being overshadowed by the political shouting, so to speak. >> the public expects real objective it etaand expects reporting and what they're getting is a spectacle on television that is called dialogue. >> keli goff, what do you think about that? >> i think that's somewhat true, but not surprising. when i write articles about the fiscal cliff debate and the ins and outs and what's being cut and those don't get as many clicks as who is being mean to the pres
, and rob, and robert costas on that big news that the trillion dollar coin will not be made, hearts at louis vuitton are crushed. so, they do not have to worry about that. so let's get to the one big last question. heather, i will start with you, the big battle in washington the debt ceiling. who will win? >> the democrats are -- and the president are going to have to win this. because too much is at stake. i mean, if we look at what actually is driving the nation's debt. we have two war thars that were on a credit card. we've a medicare part-d that was a huge give away to the pharmaceutical companies. and the bush tax cuts. those are the biggest drivers of the nation's debt and now republicans are saying we spent the money and the commitments but we do not want to pay the bill because we want to try to shut down the government and enforce more spending cuts that will directly put americans out of work and will stop us from being able to do what we need to do to invest in our nation's future. it's really not good. >> what is your take on this, bob, considering the boehner rule, tryi
